Pre-Production of “Stand By Me” Begins!

corpspinup

 

The <Tauren Marines> are psyched to announce that pre-production for their next film “Stand By Me” has officially begun!

The <Tauren Marines> are known for their ferocity in battle, their camaraderie in all things, and their badassery on-screen. “Sand By Me” is the perfect chance to feature these well-known characteristics for all to behold (and envy).

The script and soundtrack are complete, and filming will begin shortly. Watch for your chance to be featured in what will surely be this summer’s biggest Emerald Dream hit.

Days of Future Past

"What's this button do?"

“Run with the Bulls, or be trampled by them?”

Today is a special day for many reasons. As many of you know, we are going to bring brand new TAUREN MARINES into the ranks today with a promotion ceremony. What you might not have known, is that we are saying goodbye to one of the greatest Marine I have ever had the privilege of wading through battle with.

LT KVIN STORMSPEAK, POST!

I met LT Stormspeak a long, long time ago. I remember the ride we took with the Terran, the one that took us away from Mulgore and into the Great Beyond for what we thought would be the first and last time. That ship took us deep into space; deep into the heart of the enemy; deep into the darkness within our own lost souls. But through it all, I have been able to rely on LT Stormspeak for anything – ANYTHING. The Corps owes its existence and its structure to the XO, and we will never forget it.

Today, he retires. He has lived a lifetime of war and bloodshed. It’s time for him to move on, to find new pastures, and to reap the rewards of peace that we have fought so long to secure for so many others. Today, we salute him, and we wish the wind be at his back.

May the Earthmother watch over you, and guide you all the days of your life.

GROUP! ATTENSHUN!

PRESENT

ARMS!

We have honored the past, and now we will look towards the future. We have had more Recruits in the last months than we have had in the last years combined. The quality of our Recruits is astounding. I have high hopes for the future based on what I’ve seen in the past thirty days here.

Today we welcome those who have satisfied all the requirements for advancement to TAUREN MARINE, the most prestigious combat position and rank in the entire goddam Horde Army. Extremely few protectively seek out enlistment, and the work to make the rank of Marine. They join the ranks of the Few, the Proud, the TAUREN MARINES.

RECRUITS FOR PROMOTION, POST!

POST THE ORDERS!

Chieftain’s Day 2014

WoWScrnShot_021714_144641

A barely functioning Goblin-made recording machine zaps and fizzes as the following recording plays over underlying static. You recognize it from the Tauren Marine Chieftain’s Day Ceremony held at Red Rocks. You can hear the soft drizzle of rain in the background before the Commander’s voice is heard.

“Gather round, Marines, and take a knee. Today, we honor the great Chieftains, past and present, who have guided  our people into this era of unprecedented prosperity.  Continue reading

[Update] Operation Re-run

WoWScrnShot_020114_233706

As of this writing, we are 1199 daily quests away from our [Battle Standard of Coordination]! We’ve got 18 days to accomplish February’s mission, and we can still make it. An update on where we stand:

1199 left to go, with 4 Marines and 13 Recruits, means that each member must complete 4 daily quests per day to make it. Factor in those who are less active or miss a day or two, and 6-7 is more sure number to take us to mission success.

The Command Team will publish a guide on how to complete a number of easy peasy daily quests per day to help inform your questing. Let’s getter done!
